We did it!!! We had a race that was not a dust storm!!!! Not only did we not have dust, we had an awesome track!!! Parking may have not been ideal, but we got through it with the combined effort of the front gate staff and other staff members. More important, we got through it with your help!!!
I received a call from the landowner in Laurens and the tornado of last week went over the property at Chestnut Corner. He told me that some trees were down, but I told him I had a big chainsaw that would take care of that. The track crew will start working down there on Tuesday after we finish in Yadkinville. I will let you know more about the track and mileage middle week.
Online sign up is open until Thursday night at 11:00 p.m. It will save you time at registration and gives you the opportunity to walk the track before the race or just relax .
I know that many of you have questions about how the drops will work and how overalls will be figured. I pulled this from the rules that are posted on this website:
To receive points, a rider must make at least one lap.
To be eligible for end-of-year awards, a rider must have completed at least TWELVE of the sixteen events for points. These events must be in the SAME class. Class Championships will be decided by the points accumulated in a rider’s best twelve finishes. A rider must have completed at least one lap to receive numerical points for an event. However a DNF, does count as an event. Points are based on actual finishing positions at each event.
UTV's must run SEVEN of the ten events in the same class. Pro's must have completed EIGHT of the ten events
Pro’s and Expert’s class points will be based on best fourteen finishes out of sixteen events.
Overall points will be based on best fourteen finishes for the sixteen events. Must run at least TEN races. However, a DNF does count as an event
October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Please wear pink in honor of those who have battled breast cancer and won and for those who lost that battle.
Please continue to remember Mike Cline, Sam Bostic, Doug Cook, Rich Savarese and Marcus Pitts in your prayers. They are battling cancer and need our prayers. There is a benefit for Mike Cline scheduled on October 28th in Hickory. If you are in that area, all proceeds from this benefit will go to Mike to help offset medical expenses. I will post a copy of the flyer on the Mideast facebook page. Also remember Travis Cook in your thoughts and prayers. Travis injured his wrist on Saturday during the race.
Kindness is one thing that we all can do each day that is free!! Please treat others as you wish to be treated.
Thank you for being a part of the Mideast family!!!! You are very much appreciated!!
